And in case you're wondering, what typically defines a hobo bag is its large size, its curved, crescent shape, and its
unstructured "slouchiness," (resembling the "sack on a stick" that hobos were often portrayed as carrying).

If you plan to carry heavy items in your finished bag, consider adding a lining to the bag for extra strength. You may
even want to add a layer of fusible interfacing to your fabric pieces to make your bag even more durable. But if you
do this, just make sure to test the interfacing first on pieces of your bag fabric because the interfacing may make your
fabric too stiff and interfere with the “slouchy” look you may be going for.

And if you think you’ll be laundering your finished bag, just remember to preshrink your fabric, especially if your fabric
is a cotton or a cotton blend. (If you think you’ll only be spot-cleaning your finished bag, you can skip this step.) You
may even want to launder your cotton fabric more than once because cotton doesn’t always shrink its maximum
amount with the first washing.

And because hobo and other fabric bags often consist of simple shapes, they can be a great first project for a beginner
who's just learning how to sew.
